#Repost from one of our partners in Guatemala, @womens_justice
"We first met Carmen and Blanca several years ago, when they participated in WJI’s Adolescent Girls Program. Although both girls have faced many challenges in life, they have drawn upon the lessons and confidence that they gained with WJI to achieve their goals and postpone marriage.
Carmen created a business selling tortillas and beauty products with her sister, and when sales began to plummet due to COVID-19, she found a way to make home deliveries instead. Meanwhile, Blanca was encouraged by WJI to continue her studies, and after interning with WJI during the week and attending classes on the weekends, she was able to achieve her goal of graduating from high school in 2018! Stories like these inspire us to continue the work that we do. Click here to read more about Carmen and Blanca: http://ow.ly/x16Z50E5GAH"
Thanks for sharing @womens_justice! We love this story and it inspires us too.
